May's Top 10 Events

The enthusiasm for Disney's hit movie "Frozen" hasn't melted away just yet — not even close. After an ice show adaptation of the film was announced last month, we expected that excitement for the show would be sky high. The question was: To what degree?

Now we know. The May 20 sales date for the show helped propel "Frozen" straight to the top of TN.com's May Top 10 in a way that was almost as effortless as Elsa creating her ice castle. To put it in more glacial terms, on that day Frozen made up almost 40% of all tickets sold on TN.com. That's huge!

It's the kind of number we usually see for a concert onsale for a very popular artist or band (Jay-Z & Beyonce were in this territory). Other than some of the big Broadway productions like The Book of Mormon, or a circus show like Ringling, we don't typically see this kind of thing for theater. It just goes to show: create something catchy and viewers will latch on forever.

Check back tomorrow for more ticketing trends about Frozen, including information about its fortunes during today's individual ticket onsales day.

April's Top 10 Events

I'm quite excited to report that Fleetwood Mac took the lead position for last month's TicketNetwork.com Top 10, as I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to discuss if Ringling Bros. went another month at the top. Last month I wondered if it was possible Paul McCartney might take the top spot like he did in April 2013, but the reuniting of Mac's classic lineup helped boost the band up.

The band's fortunes here at TN.com were assisted by, first and foremost, sales for its two concerts at the TD Garden in Boston, MA. A super-majority of the tickets for that venue were for the first show on October 10. However, the venue wasn't an overwhelming portion of sales. Other venues that brought in many ticket sales for this tour included the United Center in Chicago, IL; The Forum in Inglewood, CA; and the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.

March's Top 10 Events

Well, it happened. Ample ticket sales at TN.com allowed the Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus to once again claim the top spot on this list. When combined with the last three-month period from July to September, and last March, that gives Ringling a full half year at the top.

As I've mentioned in previous months, it isn't that the other events have done poorly. They've done very well, and in particular the Kiss & Def Leppard and the Eminem & Rihanna tours were neck and neck for the second position. It's just that so many more Ringling Bros. tickets were sold during March.

It is possible things will change in April. Last year, Paul McCartney displaced Ringling Bros. during April, and wouldn't you know, he's plotting more dates this year. Maybe we'll see him claim the top spot again?

February's Top 10 Events

I'm beginning to feel a bit like a broken record, but the Ringling Bros. Circus just does that well when it's on fire, as does Monster Jam. Indeed, those two events dominated the ticket sales landscape for yet another month. For Ringling, it's the fifth time in the top spot in the last seven months, and this month's lead was quite convincing, leaving everyone else in the dust. Maybe it'll go for another streak of three, but we'll have to wait until next month to find out.

I'm more interested in discussing Bruno Mars. Sales for his tour's tickets listed at TicketNetwork.com were close to rivaling Monster Jam. Had some things been different, he might be in the second spot. Still, ticket sales for these shows did extremely well, which is why he got the third spot.

January's Top 10 Events

Hey, Ringling Bros. is #1 in the Top 10 again! That's four times in the last six months it has held the top spot. It would have had an overwhelming lead as well, if it weren't for Monster Jam, which was almost at the top but couldn't quite make it.

These two events show up in the top spots so often because, other than being popular in their own right, tickets are typically low-priced and many shows are available. In the case of January, the Ringling Bros. circus had a boost in ticket sales for events in Miami, FL; Charlotte, NC; Nashville, TN; and Birmingham, AL. Though Miami was the city with the most tickets sold, the biggest single event was the January 25 show in Nashville.

The opposite was true of Monster Jam, which saw big sales for events in Houston, TX; Anaheim, CA; Tampa, FL; and Atlanta, GA. The biggest seller was the January 18 show in Houston.
